It’s easy to get caught up with all the busy planning and wedding stress, that’s why there are common mistakes that any soon-to-be bride usually makes and we know it! So if your big day is coming up anytime soon, do take note of these top five common mistakes when planning your bridal hair and makeup:
Skipping the Makeup Trial
We all know how busy our lives can be and this is why most soon-to-be brides just skip the makeup trial. But we are telling you not to! It is essential for you to know ahead of time what you will actually look like on your wedding day. Aside from this, it is also an advantage that you meet your glam team ahead of time and go through the exact process of the hair and makeup session to give you an idea of what to expect on the big day. In this trial, you will experience and understand that it takes time to do wedding hair and makeup which then will allow you to give time on your wedding day for this session. Plus, you’ll be more comfortable with the people around you on the big day after meeting them on your makeup trial. So don’t ever skip the makeup trial.
Neglecting to Exfoliate And/Or Moisturise
Prevention is better than cure but prevention takes time ahead! Most brides-to-be forget to exfoliate and use moisturiser or totally skip this essential process. Just like painting, you’ll be need the best canvas as possible. Same with having your makeup done! Consistent exfoliation and moisturising helps having a smoother and better skin- less dry and flaky texture, which helps achieve a more natural looking and glowing skin. So go on exfoliate, moisturise, and a bonus tip: have face masks!
Experimenting on Something New
It’s easy to get caught up when having a grand celebration like a wedding which sometimes lead to the temptation of experimenting with new looks. This is a very common mistake that most brides commit. From having super bright red lips to using thick wigs, name it! So our advice for you would be to have the goal of stillelooking like you but better, enhanced, and defined. A recognisable you when walking down the aisle and back to our first tip, this is why it is essential for you to have your makeup trial. In case you would really want to experiment with a new look, then you would have a trial to do so incase things to work out in the end.
Disregarding Body Makeup
Some people find it weird to put makeup beyond the face, thus, a common mistake for brides. The thing is, makeup shouldn’t just stop on you face— it should go beyond the exposed skin that your dress allows to have that well balanced and blended skin tone. You wouldn’t want to look having a different tone on different parts of your body now, would you? So the key to looking all glowing is to never skip your body makeup!
Not Having A Touch Up Kit
Now this is the major common mistake most brides commit, not having a touch up kit with them! It’s true that wedding hair and makeup artists like our Team Orchid Blush uses the best quality cosmetic brands to let your makeup last the whole day. With this most brides just be complacent with their hair and makeup for the day but there are inevitable circumstances that we can not assure. So it is best to always have a small touch up kit near you, usually it is your maid of honor or one of your bridesmaids who would do the honour of keeping your touch up kit for you.
There you have it! This rounds up all five common mistakes when planning your bridal hair and makeup. We hope that you took time to read and note these as it will surely help you have a great wedding day ahead!
